This photographic journal maps an archive of one family's collections of photographs, diaries, letters, artefacts and found objects. Created by visual artist Jill Carter, who was invited to respond to a rural environ, a neglected dairy barn and its hidden inherited contents. Found was one red leather writing case and a tarnished key which began a process of discovery. The images document a series of intimate performative acts of selection, wrapping and placing collections into the light.

About the Author

JILL CARTER
jillcarter Wiltshire, UK

I love creating journals and badly behaved short run or one off books crammed full with quirky drawings, insightful and humorous text, photographs and found objects. As a visual artist, fine art trained, my practice explores how art can develop insight and inspiration, inspire creativity, acting as a catalyst for positive change, creativity and well-being. A natural chronicler, collector and curator, I enjoy playful, poetic and performative ways of responding to people, places and life.
